Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great original Civil War soldier's canteen. This is a smooth side pattern of 1858. This is the canteen that was often used by soldiers on both sides of the Civil War. This one has the original pewter spout intact at the top of the canteen. Inside the spout it has the original cork and metal stopper with the chain intact as well. On the sides of the canteen it has the three original strap loops intact. This one is in fine shape and has the original cover still intact with a nice used but not abused look. The canteen still has the original shoulder strap present. What makes this one special is the stamping that is on the side of the cotton sling. You can see the remnants of the rectangular stamp that reads "T.F. Bayles U.S. Inspector NEW YORK". This lets us know that this canteen is one of the ones that went through the New York Depot. This would help us date the canteen between early 1864 and the spring of 1865. This will be a fine piece to add to your soldier's personal items collection.
